Breathe Spirit breathe…


maker of chaos
resister of order
she who takes on the world –

wreak havoc in complacency
upturn smugness and self satisfaction
defy authorities that deflate
challenge all powers that squeeze
the hope out of your people
and your church

and breathe life back in
to a world gasping.

breathe, spirit.


A wonderful snatch of liturgy from Cheryl at holdthisspace. It seems appropriate for the day after the Scottish elections and it really challenges me to believe that the Spirit of God can take on the world and breathe hope into the darkest of places.

I have been more than a little devoid of hope recently so this is my prayer… breathe Spirit breathe.
